Distinguished Ecologists Seminar Series - Emily Bernhardt
Seminar Title: The biogeochemical consequences of restoring wetland hydrology to agricultural landscapes.
Emily S. Bernhardt is an Associate Professor of Biogeochemistry in the Department of Biology at Duke University. Bernhardt received her Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University in 2001 and carried out postdoctoral research at Duke and the University of Maryland before her beginning her faculty position at Duke. Bernhardt’s research is motivated by a desire to understand the capacity for ecosystems to retain nutrients and energy in the face of human accelerated environmental change.
Her current research primarily focuses on how the carbon and nutrient cycles of aquatic ecosystems are altered by climate and land cover change, and the extent to which restoration can prevent, reverse or minimize these alterations.
